More visitors at Theodore Roosevelt NP in 2009

Despite a weak economy, 2009 brought more visitors to national parks across the country, including Theodore Roosevelt National Park near Medora, ND.

“In a lot of cases, park visitation tends to go up when the economy is bad,” said Eileen Andes, chief of interpretation and public affairs at TRNP. “That could have to do with value. People are looking for value these days and national parks really are a good value.”

In 2008, about 516,800 visitors stopped at TRNP and though 2009 numbers will not be finalized until the end of February, about 579,000 were reported to have visited the park.

The U.S. has 58 national parks and of those, TRNP ranks 31st for visitation numbers.
